''Starflight'' puts the player into the captains seat and sets them free on a galaxy of 270 stars and 800 planets. This is an early example of a sand box game which leaves the player free to explore for minerals, locate habitable planets, upgrade the ship and crew, and interact with aliens. The eventual goal becomes stopping unusual solar flares in the region.
In this run Aqfaq already knows the cause of the flares and gets straight to business. He gets a better engine, plenty of fuel and uses the continuum fluxes to speed up travel as well. He locates the Black Egg and the Crystal Orb. Then uses them to blow up the Crystal Planet and save the galaxy.
